Description

This is a four-session event; your registration gains you entry to all four sessions.

Storytellers Jim Brulé and David Heathfield welcome you on a storytelling exploration of compassion. We’ll tell three parallel stories from diverse oral traditions and invite you to look deeply into your responses. You will be encouraged to share your insights with others on this learning journey, and may choose to tell a personal story that springs to mind.

The way we explore stories through creative, collaborative, and personal response activities will allow you to adapt and apply these methods in teaching contexts where older children, teenagers, and adults can learn about compassion and humanity through storytelling.

Sessions will be held at the same time on both days: 28 and 29 January, 2023:

  • 15:00-17:00 GMT (10am-12pm Eastern)
  • 18:30-20:30 GMT (1:30-3:30pm Eastern)

The mission of Transformational Storytelling is to help inspire deep, lasting change in individuals, groups, and communities through the power of story.

Here you can both experience transformational stories and learn how to become a transformational storyteller. We have worked with individuals, groups, and communities around the world promoting the growth of spirit that comes from living with an open heart. We do not promote a particular tradition or ideology - our fundamental assumption is that we must truly appreciate the richness of our differences and the joy of our commonality to lead a full life.

We look forward to encountering you in the future!
